The latest addition to Saga’s ocean cruise fleet, Spirit of Adventure, has been delivered by shipbuilder Meyer Werft.
Spirit of Adventure is Saga’s second purpose-built boutique cruise ship, joining Spirit of Discovery which became part of the Saga fleet with much fanfare in July 2019. Spirit of Adventure has 554 all balcony cabins and can accommodate 999 passengers with a tonnage of 58,250 GT.
“Over the past 18 months, we have been focused on creating a British boutique cruising experience for our guests that is not available elsewhere on the market and Spirit of Adventure is an important milestone in this plan.” said Nigel Blanks, Managing Director of Saga Cruises.
While Spirit of Adventure shares some similarities with her sister ship, Spirit of Discovery, she is unique in her own right with distinctive design features and characteristics.
The Spirit of Adventure is characterised by an environmentally friendly and resource-saving design. Like her sister ship Spirit of Discovery, an eSiPod drive from Siemens is used. With a length of 236 metres, a width of 31.2 metres, she is one of the smaller and exclusive cruise ships.
Spirit of Adventure will soon set sail for the UK with her inaugural cruise now scheduled to leave on the 5th February 2021 for the Canary Islands.
